The Rogue Bar 2.0

This is the next generation of the 28.5MM Olympic bar that helped launch the revolution. Now fully machined and assembled at the Rogue factory in Columbus, Ohio, the Rogue Bar 2.0 represents the highest level of precision engineering with a wide range of new features—including stronger 190 PSI steel, durable composite bushings, and CNC-machined groove sleeves with customizable color bands, available here

Like the original flagship Rogue Bar, Version 2.0 still offers convenient dual knurl marks for both Olympic and powerlifting, with a black zinc coated shaft and bright zinc sleeves. The addition of a groove in the sleeve enables athletes and coaches to more easily identify and differentiate bars by changing out the bands. The bar comes standard with Rogue-branded bands, but you can swap them out with any of the additional color options available, or even use any custom, personalized band that matches the dimensions.

The Rogue Bar 2.0 is among the first in our arsenal to use composite bushings—a self-lubricating material often found in hi-tech aerospace equipment and military vehicles. For intense, high-rep training, these bushings dramatically minimize friction to both provide a reliable spin and help extend the shelf life of the bar itself.

The Rogue Bar helped us cement our reputation at the CrossFit Games and beyond, and we believe the Rogue Bar 2.0 is a worthy successor to that mantle.

*Warranty against bending does not cover any bar which has been damaged due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user. Negligent or faulty use includes abusive dropping of the bar (i.e., dropping the bar on a box, bench, spotter arms or pins in a power rack, excessive dropping with insufficient or damaged bumpers, or excessive dropping with iron plates, and similar usage). Any specific issues regarding a Rogue product with which a customer is not satisfied will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. We have found that most problems with bars we replace are related to abusive use rather than manufacturing or materials issues.

F Scale™
The F Scale™ is a durability scale for barbells based on functional testing at stresses similar to what barbells experience when being dropped from overhead. Bars that have been treated with Rogue Work Hardening (RWH™) are designated by having an R in their F Rating™. For more information on F Scale™ click here.

Oxidation Rate
The resistance of a barbell to oxidation depends on the type of steel and the coating. Barbells at the lower end of the spectrum will require more care and maintenance to preserve their appearance than barbells at the upper end of the spectrum.

The Rogue Bar 2.0 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 164.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, But.... A good bar but after 2 months of use the black paint is already coming off on the smooth centre part of the bar, revealing the steel. Also the spin is very poor. There then that the bar is nice to use. 3.5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Rogue Product In building my hone gym, I thought I better not chince on the bar. So glad I didn't. My Rogue 2.0 is beauteous. Solid. Aesthetically pleasing. Internal construction I don't have to worry about. I expect to hand this bar down to my kids one day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sexy, Sleek, Well Rounded Bar I have been using this bar a little over a month now and boy do I love it. My buddy and I needed a new bar as our weights were getting a little too heavy for our cheap old bar. All of our lifts increased as soon as we started using this bar. The bar looks super sexy. The black zinc is amazing! The bar is also 28.5 around instead of our old bar at 29.5 which makes our lifts a littler easier. Great bang for your buck! Rogue never lets me down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How stupid I was... I use to think my previous bar was fine... I was SO WRONG!!! This one feels so much better. I only train basic barbell training and the bar is so versatile. It looks great, it feels great. You put your hands around and you need to grind harder than usual. You have to!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bar! I bought the Rogue 2.0 bar a month ago to use in a home gym that I work out in along with 4 or 5 other people and this bar does not disappoint. We use it for deadlifts, squats, snatches, bench and everything else and it works just fine for all of them. This is the third Rogue bar we have purchased and I’m sure it won’t be the last. Keep up the good work Rogue!
